Description
For millennia, the eye agate has been worn to guard against evil. Such amulets have been discovered in the tombs of ancient kings and still are commonly worn in the Mediterranean region today. During the flower of the Classical age, some unknown person wore this delicate gold ring set with a lucky talisman. We do not know if the ring's magic protected them from harm, but it clearly brought beauty to the hand that it adorned. - (FJ.2978)
